As summer drifts into memories and fall brings a chill to the air, it's the perfect time for apple pie, pumpkin picking, and, of course, nature's own show of colors.

Get out there now, as late September and October are the best times to view the autumn palette. The best part of fall foliage tours are they can be done on a nice warm drive or on foot, getting that last hike in before winter takes over. Its also the perfect time to visit many of these spots as the summer tourists have cleared out and the ski bums haven't arrived.

Even if you don't live in the Northeast or Mid Atlantic states, there are plenty of great fall foliage spots throughout the U.S. The vivid red, orange, and yellows are sure to have you camera happy.

So breathe in the crisp fall air and make your way to some of the best destinations in the U.S. for fall foliage - and if you take some great shots, send them to IBTravler so we can show them off!
